Friend-Makin' Mondays!

Was over on All That is Good and it's Friend-Makin' Mondays! Haven't done one in a bit, so here I go :)

You wouldn't be caught dead where?: Hmm...I don't really have any place like this. But I don't think I'd want to be dead in an alley.

Do you have any hidden talents?: If you knew me in high school, you would know that I played the tuba, trombone, and baritone. I was also first chair for trombone and tuba!! I really miss my tuba, actually.

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at: Organizing events and (possibly) baking. I'm definitely improving on baking.

Name two things you consider yourself to be very bad at: Cleaning and anything involving manual dexterity. My mom always used to say that she should have named be Grace because then I'd have some. After knocking around some pots and pans, Steve agreed with her.

Have you ever won a trophy?: Not a trophy per se. I have won a lot of academic honors. I was part of the 8th grade basketball team that won a trophy. I didn't score ONE point that year...

Name one thing not many people know about you: Since we're all ladies here...I had a breast reduction in 2006. Best decision I ever made.

Name your earliest memory: I can remember doing letters with my mom when I was probably between 4 and 5 years old. If I remember correctly, I was awesome at V's.

What was your favorite musical group in jr. high?: Hmm...I'm not sure about this. I feel like I want to say Our Lady Peace, but junior high may have been too early for that. I can tell you that my first CD was Chumbawumba.

What was something the worst roommate you ever had did?: My first roommate was pretty bad. I didn't grow up in a family that fought often and we NEVER screamed at each other. My roommate would constantly scream at her mother on the phone and it was REALLY uncomfortable. She threw a TV remote at me once too because I asked a question about a show she was watching. They kept telling us to "work it out" and that we would have to learn to live with people if we were going to get married. I'm sorry, but I picked who I got married too. I did not pick her as my roommate. Then I got the most awesome roommate ever. :)

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?: A band director or a forensic scientist.

What was your worst dating experience?: My husband is probably the only real boyfriend I had. But I did have a "boyfriend" in 8th grade. That was bad news. I don't know how much I want to go there. ;)

If you were about to die what would your last meal be?: Sushi or a churrascaria. I love Brazilian steakhouses!!

Who is the most important person in you life?: My loving husband!

If your house was on fire what 3 things would you grab on your way out?: My husband, my travel journal and...let me think...possibly our donation money. We have a good amount of money that doesn't technically belong to us. And I would feel bad if someone didn't get the money that belonged to them because of a fire. So I guess that would be my third.
